And wouldn't this be better suited in The Lounge?
Or is the result of her decision going to decide a new bike for you?

Never trade happiness for money. If she'll truly enjoy the new job then it's easy but take money out of the equation is my 2 cents.ralfho said:
Never underestimate the value of serenity. If she enjoys what she does, if you make enough money to pay the bills, and if you are comfortable with what you have, then you have more already than do most people. Too often, we marry our feelings of self worth to what we make or what position we hold. These are objective bench marks that we can use to measure ourselves against the rest of society; in other words, they feed our egos.ralfho said:
Agree--if you've already got enough money to pay the bills and have fun then more isn't gonna make you happier. That said--there is a big difference when someone making 20k a year goes to 100k vs someone already making 100k goes to 180k.chuckice said:Never trade happiness for money.

Same...not crazy about my job, but it pays well and allows me lots of paid vacation time and good benefits for my family. If I could afford to retire tomorrow I would though. I have plenty of pursuits that I'd love to do that don't bring in money (or cost money) unfortunately.bikeboy389 said:I'm only working so I can retire one day, and I have been lucky in that I like what I do and where I work, but also make more money here than I would anywhere else.
you only go round once in life, so go for it and see what happens........make hay while the sun shines, and stash as much away for a rainy day as you can..........ralfho said:
my ex got a 105% raise at a new job and left expecting a "long distance relationship" to which she was not whole-heartedly dedicated.ralfho said:
